The benefits of rural living

September 2016

“Location is hugely important when considering a new home, and although cities play a vital role in offering job opportunities, the benefits of settling down in the countryside are vast. From easy commuter links to stunning views and wonderful local communities ideal for bringing up a family, the advantages of rural living are plentiful.”
Top five benefits of rural living:

1. Location, location, location
When it comes to buying a new home, this is one of the most important factors. It sets the tone for your day-to-day life and has a huge impact on the overall feel of your home. With its Hartley Brook and The Grange sites in Netherton and Lightcliffe, along with St John’s Walk in Hoylandswaine, David Wilson Homes can offer a range of new homes that boast beautiful views of the sprawling West and South Yorkshire countryside, all providing a distinct rural feel with plenty of green open space to enjoy.
2. Strong commuter links
Settling outside of a city doesn’t mean you have to compromise with distance to travel for work or leisure. With motorways within easy reach of all of these sites, along with local rail connections, commuting to the likes of Leeds, Bradford or Sheffield is a simple task.
3. Perfect for families and professionals alike
With a range of beautiful three bedroom townhouses available at The Grange, along with luxurious four and five bedroom homes at Hartley Brook and St John’s Walk, these developments offer the ideal spot for professionals, couples and families alike.
4. Local activity
Just because you’re able to enjoy the local countryside and escape the hustle and bustle of city centre life doesn’t mean that you’ll be lacking when it comes to filling your hard-earned weekends. With sports clubs, parks, and community groups in the nearby villages and towns, you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to getting active, socialising and occupying the whole family.
5. House prices
Even though you’re gaining incredible views and a new rural lifestyle, it doesn’t come at an extra cost. All this can be obtained from as little as £294,995, while still living in a stylish rural home – a relative snip in comparison to what you’d get in the likes of Leeds, Sheffield or Bradford city centres. With Help to Buy available, buyers can secure a new home with just a 5% deposit, meaning moving to a dream, rural location truly is a reality.
